     Topiary paced the floor of the Saratoga Glory guild house, his eyes tracing his
steps.  Once a guildhouse of prominence and glory, now just a dusty, cold and
weathered shell.  Weapons of all kinds adorned the walls, tarnished and dull.  Chairs
and parchment were strewn about the floor.  Dingy rags, matted and moldy were in the
corners of room.  "This has all been worth it!" Topiary thought.
     The door flew open and in strode a smaller powerful looking gladiator.
     "What is thy news Stratostar?"  Topiary asked.
     "HE is has returned!" exclaimed Stratostar.
     A mixture of relief, anger, concern and rage swirled in Topiary's stomach.
"HIM?  Where has he been?  Why did he leave us?  What is his explanation?"
     "He will explain it all.  I ran ahead to warn you, Topiary.  I know how
emotional you can get.  Just try to listen to him and understand.  Try not to take
things so personally.  Okay?"
     "Okay....  Well?!  WHERE IS HE?!?!?!?!"
     "Nice job of trying...."
     Just then the door that was ajar was pushed open and a man entered.  His eyes
smoldered with disgust and his nostrils flared.  He scanned the room, seemingly
oblivious of the two figures in the room.  He strode forth and kicked over a chair
that had been lying on its side.  From beneath his robes he pulled out a shiny orb.
As his fingers released the orb it hovered in mid air.  A blinding light grew from
the sphere.  Before anyone could move it encompassed the entire room.  It flashed a
brilliant array of colors.  Stratostar and Topiary threw up their arms to shield
their eyes.
     Silver Train and Personal Legend had been training in the back barn.  Trying to
keep their skills sharp and their reflexes ready.  They both noticed what seemed to
be an explosion without the noise emanating from their home.  They were out of the
barn and on the back porch in a flash.  As they hurled the door open they prepared
for the worst.  What their eyes gazed upon was a shock.
     Their once cold, musty and dark home was no longer.  They stood before a
brightly lit and warm and richly furnished palace.  There they stood in awe, blinking
wildly.  Amazement and disbelief on their faces.  This could mean but one thing....
HE was back!  Silver Train and Personal Legend raced into the living room and they
saw him.
     "Mad Max, I mean, the Trainer!!  You're back!!!!"
     "Ah, Silver Train, Personal Legend.  So good of you both to join us.  I was just
about to explain to Topiary and Stratostar where I have been.  First, I must
apologize profusely to you both as I have to your guildmates.  I am very sorry.
Please sit and enjoy the food.  I will explain everything to you now."  He paused for
a moment pursed his lips and began to speak once again.
     "I was in Aradi with my team and I was preparing my team there for the upcoming
TOGS, well, now this past TOGS, when a figure appeared out of no where.  This figure
pointed a wand at me and all went black.  I was confined standing, in a space of
stone and earth in total darkness unable to lay down for what seemed like years.  I
only survived thanks to a trickle of water and the occasional earthworm that would
crawl through an opening.  I had no idea who would do this to me or why.  Only thanks
to the Mighty Caesar was I rescued."
     "Caesar?!?!?!  But I thought he was dead!" exclaimed Topiary.
     "May I continue?" Mad Max interrupted.
     "Certainly, my lord." Silver Train responded.  "Topiary, keep your mouth shut
while the master speaks."
     "It's okay Silver Train.  Now, where was I?"
     Topiary opened his mouth to speak but closed it quickly after his guildmates
turned and flashed a mean look in his direction.
     "Ah, yes, Caesar.  It was actually quite by accident really.  He had been on an
eight year bender at the Green Dragon Tavern.  He was despondent with the over all
talent of his gladiators and he had grown weary of beating Destitute Noble's warrior
with such ease.  At one point Noble's warriors had actually proved to be somewhat of
a challenge for his warriors but Caesar had gained such dominance over Noble's
warriors that DN refused to accept challenges from his former equal.  Now, it would
just be pure luck if one of Noble's warriors could even survive a minute.  It was a
shame really.  It had been quite a rivalry at one point too."
     "Anyway, the mighty Caesar was out playing some game called "the links" where
you hit a small dimpled white ball called a "golfer" or something like that.  He had
hit his "golfer" into the dirt when all of a sudden he fell victim to this fearsome
pitfall known as a "Sand Trap".  In his desperation to get out of this "Sand Trap"
he began hacking into it causing all kinds of dirt and debris to go flying.  The next
thing I knew I was free.  Thanks to Caesar's wild flailing and panic caused by the
Sand Trap I was able to escape.  I owe him my life."
     "Well, after that, Caesar and I (with the help of the Dark One) were able to
track down who cast that spell on me.  It was the Sandman."
     "The Sandman?!?!"  exclaimed the group.  "But isn't he a member of the
BoB?!?!?!"
     "Yes, he was."
     "But, why?!?!"
     "Apparently, he had grown jealous of the fact that I was doing better in
tournaments than he was.  I had pulled 2 TCs and 3 runner ups in a years time on a
very limited budget.  He wasn't doing anything with more than 3 times my budget.
It's a shame really.  He was a decent fellow.  He is taken care of now though."
     "How, did you take care of him?"
     "Well, Caesar, the Dark One and I threw him in a lake.  He is a laughing stock
now.  We just call him Mudd."
     "So, who's ready to train?  I'm not going anywhere ever again!"

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  LUROCIAN GUARD after a sorry 1-4-0 might want 
to consider abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' 
blues!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a perceptive 
observation?) as DISILLUSIONED can attest...  Say what you will about blind luck and 
dirty fighting, but ANGELS OF PAIN will tell you 120-81-4 is nothing to laugh at...  
A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 23 
points to DEMETREN.  (Discrete enough, STRATOSTAR?) Duelmaster IZUSU TROOPER from 
FLAMING DEATH is going for the gold, as it challenged RILL'S GCSC2's ROLAND.  Ooh, 
the excitement!  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by ROLAND, of 
RILL'S GCSC2, who despite a 19-10-0 couldn't overcome ARVAT's Number 1.  So who was 
the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's 
got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of FLAMING DEATH, alone and unchallenged.  As 
a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of DISILLUSIONED, so did that sorry 
team shy from FLAMING DEATH Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  
Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, GEROGE ROFT is the most challenged warrior.  
SARLOW found himself challenged by a warrior 18 below:  BRIDGESTONE.  BRIDGESTONE of 
FLAMING DEATH kept its wits as it won victory over SARLOW.  My love of complete 
Spyreports dictates that I note the mismatched fight, HEARING AID and PETER PIQUIN.  
Are DISILLUSIONED unwilling to engage in a fair fight?  I thought HEARING AID showed 
great skill and promise when he won victory over PETER PIQUIN.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Alas, poor 
LAURA.  We all know LUROCIAN GUARD's retirement plan isn't the best in the world.  
SILVER TRAIN, may you be as missed when your time comes.  A moment of silence for 
LAURA, who died an untimely death at the hands of SILVER TRAIN.  In the spirit of 
revenge, we call upon LUROCIAN GUARD to act!  Questions are being raised about the 
disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in ARVAT would I 
avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  ARVAT, I leave 
you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Warty Toad.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir

Bicycle -- I don't feel so "hip" anymore.  Nice win. -- Bionic Hip

Bridgestone -- That was easy for you, wasn't it, picking on an old fart like me?
Tarnation!  Who are you imitating--Scrooge? -- Senile

Anguish -- Thank goodness it was your anguish and not mine!  I couldn't hear you
yelling or I might have stopped sooner. -- Hearing Aid.

All -- You are not at all being respectful of your elders.  Please be more
considerate of my Disillusioned folks. -- The Old Man

Lords and Ladies of Arvat -- I have returned!  Drinks are on me at the Green Dragon
Tavern. -- the Trainer mgr. Saratoga Glory

Izusu Trooper -- Congratulations on the invite.  May you bring Arvat glory and honor.
-- the Trainer

The Sentinel -- You had better plan on bringing another team in here now that you've
graduated your stud.  Make sure you get Soultaker to join you as well. -- the Trainer

Destitute Noble -- Greetings, my old adversary.  It shall be an honor to cross sword
with you once again. -- the Trainer

the Dark One -- Greetings, my old friend.  I noticed that you are quickly approaching
a 1000 wins.  I expect you'll reach it by the end of the year.  I am giving you 2:1
odds. -- the Trainer

Destitute Noble -- My apologies for bailing on keeping track of you skirmish with the
Icelord.  Please let me know how it turned out.  The smart money was on you. -- the
Trainer

United -- My apologies that we never had a chance to have that rematch.  Perhaps one
day a long time from now, we shall.  Congratulations on your invite. -- Personal
Legend

Caesar -- It has been too long since the last time we have joined in battle.  I have
paid my tithe of six virgins and a barrel of ale at the Temple of Caesar.  Come, let
us enjoy! -- the Trainer

All Hail Rillion!!!!

All Hail the Greek Guy!!!!

Jorja/Fisherman's Wharf -- Greetings.  I look forward to matching with your honorable
warriors once again.  We at Saratoga Glory salute you! -- the Trainer

For the Godlings! -- You definitely learn like one, but you have to remember that
we're all noted heretics here. -- Sarlow, mildly earnest

Everything Zen -- Eh?  Isn't that like Kung-Fu with  fancy writing?  I didn't know
anybody did that stuff here.  Say something zen! -- Geroge Roft

Gremlin -- You're a pestiferous little imp, which I suppose has already been
mentioned to you before now.  May you bite down on me and fry your sensors, kid. --
Peter Piquin

Psychotron -- Wow, that thing where your eyes revolved in their sockets and lightning
shot out your ears?  That was amazing!  Can you do it again? -- Heron

Did we congratulate United last cycle?  If not, take our congratulations now, and
Isuzu Trooper with you. -- Fisherman's Wharf
P.S.  Hard luck for Demmell, though.

Rumor of the Week -- Mad Max was seen in the area for the first time in a year!  Or
was it the Trainer?  They look an awful lot alike!!!

Killer Instincts and Friends of Nazriptha -- I must apologize for killing your friend
and team mate.  It was most unintentional and most likely the result of a poor
deftness on my part.  Bloodfeud at will. -- Ted Ickens

Mr Trooper -- Sad that a total parry is faster than you are....  But then again, you
still beat me, so I suppose speed is not everything.  Best of luck in ADM. -- Justice

Rillion -- We were sorry to hear about the death of Demmell.  He was a worthy foe. --
the Devil Advocates

24 January 2007
The Council of Lords would like to propose a rule change in ADM and Primus.  We
propose that Lord Protectors ranked "Grand Champions" and below (ADM) and "The Tower
Guard" and below (Primus) be allowed to fight in the Dark Arena.  This would not
impact the top rankings or title match.  Any managers who never got his fill or shot
at fighting Gateway monsters would have it as an option.  We believe it might spark
some interest in the ADM/Primus realm for some managers.  If interested, speak up in
the newsletters or on forums under the "rules changes" thread and let RSI know.  This
could even be something to try for 12 months and then be re-evaluated.  What say you,
managers of Ghea? -- The Icelord sends....
